New Ferris IS® 3200Z Zero Turns Employ Latest Mowing Technology



MILWAUKEE (October 22, 2014) –The new Ferris IS 3200Z commercial zero turn mower line-up uses the latest mowing technology to provide commercial cutters with superior performance, quality and comfort.

Starting with a Ferris patented suspension system featuring adjustable rear coil-over-shocks and front independent, adjustable coil-over-shocks, the IS 3200Z offers users a chance to increase their mowing productivity. The Ferris suspension system lets the operator maintain their ground speed and take full advantage of available horsepower.

Because it helps absorb shock and vibration to the unit and the operator, Ferris’ suspension technology helps extend mower life and offers a more comfortable ride. Importantly, coil-over-shocks and all suspension-related components are covered for 4 years, unlimited hours.1

Powered by either a 36-gross hp2 Briggs & Stratton Vanguard™ BIG BLOCK™ or 37-gross hp3 Kawasaki FX1000V-DFI, the IS 3200Z touts engines choices that have been expertly engineered to delivery dependability and reliability. Both can be matched with either a 61” or 72” iCD™ Cutting System, a mowing deck designed to provide a superior cut in a multitude of conditions. Its baffle design and deep deck allow for better airflow and an extra wide opening allows for a greater, more even dispersal of clippings.

Hercules™ II cast-iron, greaseable spindles are 10” in diameter and feature industrial double-row angular contact ball bearings and a 1-3/16” diameter shaft. An updated deck mounting and leveling system with sold steel hangers provides added reliability and easy deck adjustment.

Dual commercial Hydro-Gear® ZT-5400 Powertrain® transaxles with 9” cooling fans deliver unmatched power and durability. The IS 3200Z has a forward speed of 0-12 mph.

Other features include 26” drive tires, an 11-gallon fuel tank, a premium high-back seat with arm rests, a removable floor pan and a folding ROPS.

“We’ve incorporated the all of the latest mowing technology available into the IS 3200Z design,” says Bill Shea, Vice President of Commercial Sales for the Briggs & Stratton Power Products Group. Commercial cutters can count on it providing years of performance, productivity and comfort.”

The IS 3200Z is covered by the Ferris 2 + 2 Limited Warranty: Four years (48 months) or 500 hours (whichever occurs first) or unlimited hours the first two years (24 months).1

The four models range in price from $10,999.00 to $11,999.00.4 Visit www.ferrismowers.com for more information.
